I only have used (so far) my bee vac for cut outs, and having multiple cages ready I can always pull a full one and place a empty one in.The supplier we generaly get packages from (our club) charges a $3.00 deposit so the next year we return them for a refund but this year we went with another supplier and they didnt charge a dep so I have a BUNCH stacked in my shop for next year or when ever becuse if this bunch of bees dont do better than the last we will bee looking for another supplier:waiting:
P.S. I have heard of people useing the in a vaccum but the times I have used my beevac the cage would have been to small
If they can be "re-used" by those needing to supply package bees it would be great to return them. I had just a few and I gave mine to a friend who does bee removals in case he needed them...I kept two packages and gave to my grandsons as they wanted to use them as a "bug box" to catch insects in. By the way, they love their so-called bug boxes and I've seen lightening bugs and an assorted bunch of other bugs in their new found "bug boxes."I was really looking for an answer on what they could be used for. What would you use them for ?
